My friend and I stayed one night during our road trip through Ireland. The hotel is good, modern, clean, well located and with free parking for our rental car. The staff is very friendly, they provided with directions and allowed us to use the telephone to make reservations. The hotel is modern looking, might not be the best if you... More

My husband and I stayed in Pembroke Hotel for a short mid-week break. Staff were so friendly and welcoming. Rooms lovely and cleanliness faultless. Location is fantastic and on site parking is a bonus in a city centre. We look forward to returning on our next visit to Kilkenny, we couldnt have been happier with our choice.

The hotel itself is very pretty. Service was good. Our room was a bit small, but we had a corner room so that was probably why. The wireless did not work at all in our room which was disappointing. The location was good, as we were close to the center of town. Overall it was nice. Nothing to jump up... More

Great modern hotel right in the middle of things. Huge room with great bed. Loved that it had on site parking. Rare in Ireland and the service was excellent. Kilkenny was my favorite town so far in Ireland and I couldn't have been happier with this hotel.

This was my third time to stay at the Pembroke Hotel. Excellent service, beautiful dinner and lovely room. Fabulous location, especially the views of Kilkenny Castle. I have recommended the hotel to friends and I'm looking forward to going back again myself. There is so much to see around the hotel! The staff were so helpful and friendly.

Cocktail class was great craic, food was yummy! Rooms were grand, and i heard from another hen that the toilets were comfortable for hugging if you've over indulged!!... More

I really like this hotel, fab location with free parking (only hotel in the city I think to do this!!). Staff are super friendly and the rooms are fantastic - a little bit more interesting than normal. Food is nice too and location is perfect.

The Pembroke Hotel in Kilkenny was wonderful. It's location is superb; just around the corner from the castle and within walking distance of all of Kilkenny. Our room was large, modern and well-appointed. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. The restaurant and bar were very good and the staff's recommendation of other restaurants was spot-on. Do try Rinuccini across... More

We spent three nights at the Pembroke, using it as a base for sightseeing nearby. The hotel was bright, well lit, and the staff very helpful. Our room was quiet, spacious and had all the amenities and the free WiFi worked very well. There was free parking at the hotel. The breakfast was excellent and the hotel only a few... More
